About "Sayonara" and the closing of Dach Imports:
"Screw the Twinkies, kids — it's time to stock up on throwing stars." — Scott Banbury

About "Ritz vs. the IP Deal":
"When Chairman Ritz shaves in the morning, I wonder, does he see Mayor Ritz in the mirror?" — Drift Boat

About "Minnesota 84, Tigers 75":
"The intensity Calipari made these guys play with is gone. Watch their practices. They're just casually going through the motions. The Tigers used to run you to death. Remember the days when they used to beat their opponents by 20-30 points?" — Martin Wilson

About "The Car Show; Quilts at the Brooks and Myatt Too":
"Gawd, the quilts again. I mean small-town art museum 101. A real crowd pleaser I know, but can't Brooks EVER offer us something unexpected or controversial, ever?" — Why Bother

About "A Hall of Our Own" and the new Memphis Music Hall of Fame:
"To further recognize the importance of jazz, I would encourage the choices of Phineas Newborn Jr. for his obvious genius and Herman Green for his mentoring of generations of Memphis' finest musicians." — CL Mullins

Comment of the Week:

About "The Great Hostess Taste Test":
"This is truly alternative journalism! An alternative to journalism, that is." — zinger
